    Antivirus is not necessary. The platform Android uses is much different then Windows and while it's not impossible to write a virus, it's unlikely.

    Having said that you should still be careful about the apps you install. There has been a couple of incidents of Malware reported. Review your apps carefully before installing.

    lol.....Antivirus on the DX....lol

    ok...if you were serious then Hookbill said it all. There is NO NEED for AV or ATK's on your device.
    Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.
